The Two-Shot: Bride Wars and Death Becomes Her

Anne Hathaway and Kate Hudson are brides, and they're at war! They're on a mission to sabotage each other's weddings in the critically reviled comedy BRIDE WARS, a film that - for all its many, many, MANY flaws - is the perfect double feature for Robert Zemeckis's Oscar-winning DEATH BECOMES HER, in which Meryl Streep and Goldie Hawn become homicidally superficial zombies? At least, that's what WE think. Join film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold as they show you the place where good taste and bad taste collide, every week on THE TWO-SHOT!

Everyone loves the Beatles album SGT. PEPPER'S LONELY HEARTS CLUB BAND, but the world has tried desperately hard to forget that the movie ever existed. It's an all-star cavalcade of confusing and pointless Beatles covers, by artists like The Bee Gees, Peter Frampton, Earth Wind and Fire, Aerosmith, Alice Cooper, Steve Martin and George Burns, tied together with a terrible storyline that makes no sense. And yet, somehow, this blotch on pop culture's permanent record might be the perfect double feature with Brian De Palma's exhilaratingly camp 1970s horror musical PHANTOM OF THE PARADISE, featuring music by the iconic Paul Williams!
